[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: November 2008]
[Question] It appears that atopic allergy is partly hereditary, but also that it is not well understood what causes it to break out. Could you comment, especially if there is a way to cure it?
First we will say that every illness has a “cure,” but until the intellectual and emotional elements of disease are considered, most medicine and treatment will be relegated to the alleviation of symptoms and management. For the most part, every illness carries with it some amount of “universal” element, or “universal” instinctive issue that is consistent among human sentience. For instance, nearly every issue related to the skin is relative to a person’s issues with a sense of safety in the world. When the skin is involved, the fragment would do well to explore the beliefs and assumptions about “the world as a dangerous place.” The one with the allergy may not use such a broad term, but may find an instance in her past where someone (or a situation) left a wounding that is relevant to the sensitivity of this person’s place in her environment now.
When allergies are a part of a child’s physicality below the age of approximately 3 years old, the issues may be extensions from the primary caretaker. Children manifest symptoms relative to a caretaker in the same way that animal companions do.
Hereditary allergies or any other physical compromise inherited, are often a specific choice of the Essence before the life, or considered a tolerable compromise in relation to the bigger picture of the life. However, many within a line of hereditary compromises do not manifest these compromises, so the end-result is still relative to the beliefs and assumptions of the fragment. In terms of a cure for this specific condition of atopic allergy, management is the only thing we can see available from the established medical resourced, but the fragment can do his or her own work toward transforming the underlying assumptions and beliefs that may have contributed to activation of the sensitivity. Managing from the outside, while curing from the inside, is always a most powerful approach to any illness or compromised condition.
